The Pune traffic police has released a list of 200 top traffic rule violators who were caught on closed circuit television(CCTV) multiple times. While one violator was caught 32 times by CCTV, another was caught by the policemen 20 times.
The offenders have not paid the fine till date and hence their names have been released.
Once a person violates the rule, he is caught either by CCTV or by the policemen on the road. Then e-challans are generated either by the policemen sitting in the CCTV surveillance centre or by the traffic policemen on the road.
According to the police, the violators are supposed to pay the fine online after checking details on www.punetrafficop.net with the help of their vehicle registration number or the e-challan number. However, it has been observed that many people have not paid the fine amount even after receiving messages on their phones.
DCP (traffic branch) Tejasvi Satpute said “We have released a list of habitual traffic rule offenders. They have not paid their fine amount. As per the footage in CCTV placed at various locations in the city, as many as 100 top offenders have been spotted. While one vehicle has 32 cases registered against it, another has 15. Besides, out of the top 100 violators , who were issued e-challan through devices, one violator has the highest of 20 non-paid challans while the another has the lowest of eight challans.
“We appeal to the people to first pay the fine. After Ganeshotsav, we will send cops to their homes to recover the amount. We are also exploring other legal options.”
Satpute also said that if any person has wrongly received the message for violation which he or she has not committed, then such persons should appeal to the police inspector (planning) at the traffic branch office located at the Police Commissioner’s office premises in Camp.
It may be recalled that last week, Pune police had said that as many as 92 passport applicants, accused of traffic violations and who have not paid the fine amount, will find it difficult to get the passport as cops have alerted the regional passport office about their pending fines.
